    So, this isn't very accurate as most of my matches are American, I have relatively few at 368 and most don't provide a family tree. I expanded the requirement to having a parent born in one of these counties.

    Northern Ireland

    Londonderry: 61.
    Antrim: 8.
    Tyrone: 7.
    Down: 2.

    ROI
    Donegal: 21.
    Leitrim: 1.
    Dublin: 1.
    Cork: 1.
    Kerry: 1.
    Longford: 1.
    Monahan: 1.


    As you can see my ancestry is very specific to the Northwest of Northern Ireland and I don't have much of a connection to the bulk of ROI, as I have said before.

    I don't know what's going on, but my mum has a completely different pattern to myself.

    Northern Ireland
    Londonderry: 73.
    Tyrone: 52.
    Antrim: 59.
    Down: 19.
    Armagh: 10.
    Fermanagh: 5.

    ROI
    Donegal: 150 (my mum's ancestry is not from Donegal until the early 1800's but she or her matches have a large Donegal connection).
    Dublin: 15.
    Kerry: 15.
    Leitrim: 13.
    Monaghan: 12.
    Longford: 8.
    Clare: 5.
    Sligo: 5.
    Kilkenny: 5.
    Westmeath: 5.
    Waterford: 5.
    Roscommon: 4.
    Wexford: 3.


    Nothing shows for me when I type these places in.
